Foss Park Streambank Stabilization

North Chicago, Illinois

East Skokie Drainage District needed to stabilize a streambank located entirely within the Foss Park Golf Course. V3 stabilized 6,700 linear feet of streambank including tree clearing, slope grading, toe protection and restoration.  Approximately 4,500 cubic yards of earth excavation was hauled from ditch banks to an on-site disposal area and 2,100 linear feet of tree revetment logs were anchored through the subgrade.  In addition, V3 built seven riffle complexes, 3,500 linear feet of coir roll installation, plantings and installed more than 20,000 native plugs. Approximately eight acres of native seeding along stream slopes and upland areas were also installed.
